The Growing Research Access for Nationally Transformative Equity and Diversity (GRANTED) initiative supports ambitious ideas and innovative strategies to address challenges and inequalities within the research enterprise. The research enterprise is broadly defined and includes administrative support and service infrastructure such as, but not limited to, human capital, research development and administration, research analytics, technology transfer and commercialization, corporate relations/public-private partnerships, research integrity, compliance and security, research policy, administration of student research training, and research leadership. Strengthening this administrative infrastructure supporting research and STEM training is necessary to fully utilize the Nation’s talent and capabilities and empower America’s organizations that engage in or support research, to participate in a diverse, equitable, and internationally competitive research enterprise.
GRANTED accepts proposals at ANY TIME (i.e., no deadline). However, funding has been allocated to GRANTED in FY23 and it is strongly encouraged that proposals are submitted as soon as possible so that proposals can be reviewed and receive funding in FY23.
